The voluntary scheme has been designed to recognise and encourage schools’ contributions to pupils’ health and wellbeing.
Where relevant, Ofsted inspectors may wish to consider the scheme as evidence when reaching the judgement on ‘personal development’.
1. Food education, including in the curriculum and teacher training. 2. Compliance with the school food standards. 3. The amount of time children spend on physical education each week. 4. Participation in active travel schemes.
Each participating school will receive a report based on their survey answers, and those achieving Gold, Silver or Bronze awards will receive a certificate.
Further information can be found on the DfE website
Schools are encouraged to take part in the survey, both to access the healthy schools rating scheme and to gain insight into how their pupils engage with sport and physical activity. To participate in the survey, schools should contact Yorkshire Sport Foundation who coordinates the survey for schools in your local area.
